of relationship with john boehner, say, where we can feel optimistic that they're going to have a very different kind of relationship but can actually be more effective? >> i think there's a different kind of dynamic that speaker boehner has to deal with. i don't know him personally, but his reputation is that he can get deals done, but then he has to sell them in a caucus, some whom, a minority, but a vocal minority of whom are very rigid indeed. so i think the speaker has an opportunity to show his more magnanimous leadership and to lead the whole of the house, and not just his caucus. and as he does that, i think his relationship, not just with the president, but with the general public will improve, and i hope it does. >> one of the issues he's going to face is gun crime, gun control, gun violence, generally. he's been generally audacious in terms of the proposals he's put forward. there's a reality check within minutes of him doing so. people have been queuing up from both sides of the senate and saying look, he may want an assault weapons ban but he's not going to get one. lom like the whi

. but we know that john boehner often has had trouble with his various plans. plan b most notoriously, getting them approved, accepted and passed by his own house republicans. and cantore made a very declarative statement today. there already immediately were grumblings that some house republicans will go along with this i'm not sure that democrats will, too. it remains to be seen whether, indeed, john boehner and cantore can get passed what they want to do. then again this is just another three-month extension. now the good news for the vix watchers out there is that this puts it past, you know, the coming showdowns on sequestration involving the budget which will all kind of happen in march. so this is one cliff that may not happen as two other cliffs are under way. three months from now, depending what happens with those cliffs and what happens with the economy, the house republicans, the tea partiers and the let's blow it to hell members of the republican caucus may not want to go along with this for another extension. the president has clearly won, steered them down, as he said h
. supposed he had turned around, which would have been extraordinary speaker boehner, the republican leader of the house and said we're going to work together on these things we're going to fix my agenda and your agenda and of course boehner's agenda is we have to cut spending and ivan obama's economists tell him that. so, they missed this opportunity. also, i remember catherine gram the publisher of the post used to always say it's very difficult to not like somebody who says they like you. you have talked to republicans and democrats here and they have the feeling. i'm not sure it's correct. but they feel obama doesn't like them. >> bill: he doesn't like them. [ laughter ] that's pretty clear that he doesn't like them because he doesn't feel -- he feels they are the purveyors of white privilege, bob. he is never going to say that but that's the theme that runs through his advisors. the white privileged has to be broken down. >> i think he just doesn't agree with republicans on their agenda. he is hurting his own cause. >> bill: think about what i just said. the republican agenda in his mi
the table and weren't saying this is what we have. now it's up to john boehner and his team to coax out of this conference, who is very skeptical of him because of the deal he did on the tax rates and they look at him askance and what do you want to do, obamacare, the health care law and other things that might include giving the president a debt ceiling increase until the end of his term if he's willing to agree in big changes in entitlement programs. they've got to come up with something. >> megyn: they have to come up with a game plan. we saw with the fiscal cliff negotiations the end of the year they were divided and boehner couldn't sort of corral his house republicans to be on the same page and so now he's trying to do that and to get reelected speaker, he says i'm going to listen to you, i'll be your choice. now, the question, chris, whether you think these house republicans can speak as one and can find, you know, their one mission. you know, who you are and what you stand for. what my parents used to say to me. i say to my kids, who are you and what do you stand for and they're
% of americans approve of the job he's doing as president. only 26% approve of the republican party. john boehner has an 18% approval rating. the tea party, 9% approval rating. this is a movement, this is a party in retreat and that's why the president did what he did yesterday. >> let's look at that. best case scenario would be to have two strong parties and a great national conversation and great sense of balance. i understand how you could read the speech as i won, ha-ha, and also, could be seen as this is what the country is telling me. how do we get the other points of view in there. maybe perhaps -- this is the hard part, extract what i think is dying and what i think you think is dying, that is the extremist part of that. >> the extreme part of the republican party is in retreat and just as bill buckley chased john birchers out of the conservative movement in the 1960s, so, too, will these extremists be chased out of the mainstream of the republican party. they will evolve or they will die. it's that simple. i'm not so sure the president can say, katty kay, this is what the american people
sit down with boehner, to be honest with you, face to face, mano a mano and essentially say, "look, i know you've got a hell of a problem. what carrotses, what sticks, what i can do to help you get those guys aboard so we can get some kind of an intelligent deficit financing thing here?" there's one other thing, can i mention, relating to king, which i think is really important. when you asked me at first, how did he get this done. think about selma. wonderful phone conversation in january of 1965, lyndon johnson talking to martin luther king and he says, "martin, i want you to find the worst place in the south where there are the fewest negroes--" that was the term then-- "that are eligible to vote and get your people down there and get people down there and get leaders down there and get it on television and get it on radio and get the american people to see it. and that will-- then i'll shove this bill through this congress. i'll get voting rights because, and treat it as same for everybody. it's not a negro thing. we want the guy on the tractor, the guy in chicago, the guy in the

boehner, eric cantor, the number two republican in the house, and mitch mcconnell, the republican leader in the senate, are at the white house right now having coffee with the president. do you think that there really is a chance that there can be some sort of a get together, bipartisan effort, something we haven't seen thus far? >> you know, not on everything, bob, but on some things for sure. not just because people are becoming enlightened, but because of their self-interest. if you look at your own polling and the polling that we have seen in the last few days, the republican party is trading at record lows. the congress at almost record lows. the strategy of obstruction has not been worked well for the republican party. that's why i think you saw them retreat from the plan to push this debt ceiling issue immediately upon returning to work. so i think that there's a prospect for getting some things done. certainly on issues like immigration reform. there's a powerful impetus for there to be progress. i think we can make some. >> david, thank you very much. you're going to be leaving
the majority of the majority has to be for something. basically boehner's dispensed that rule twice. but, look, when you look at those numbers for the republican party, i'm reminded of one of my favorite lines from jfk which you quoted on the show last week. if you ride the back of the tiger, you often end up inside. they rode the back of the tea party to power, and right now the tea party is dictating to them. if the tea party succeeds, for example, in pushing them into default on the full faith and credit of the country and the economy crashes, that 49% disapproval will be 69%. >> that's exactly what i was thinking about before the show tonight. who is in charge, the nra or the republicans? who is riding whose back? it looks like the republicans are riding the nra's back, and it's a dangerous animal. thank you. >>> remember the long lines in florida this past election day where republicans tried to make it difficult for people to vote? wait until you hear what governor rick scott is saying about it now. not my job, i didn't do that, don't blame me. this is "hardball," the place for politics.

yesterday, house speaker john boehner responded with this statement -- " what are your thoughts on this? if the debt ceiling negotiable. some quick comments -- remember, you can post your comments on twitter. the first phone call is from maryland, a democratic caller, jill. caller: i don't believe the debt ceiling is negotiable. it is kind of ridiculous that the money is already owed, so why are we not going to pay what is owed to other people? if people have made investments, the bills have to be paid. i find it ridiculous that people in congress don't want to pay what is already owed. it does not make sense. host: here is the wall street journal this morning. caller: well, if you're asking me if that's true, i think there definitely needs to be somewhat of a compromise as far as spending cuts, but that is not an easy issue, because spending cuts mean job losses. it's not an easy thing to say a president will say we will stop paying the bills too. so there has to be compromised rehab the debt ceiling and some degree of trimming the fat, but i don't know how that is going to happen with
there in the house. but speaker boehner has resolved not to let them dictate policy. >> not everyone is as optimistic as shiewp schumer is. tomorrow, they will be here, 1600 people up here, representing all three branches of government. most people expect comity and respect will be the order of the day. but evan bayh believes by tuesday morning, they will be back to the same old fights. >> the politics is just very divisive, with the extremes in both parties punishing any sort of compromise. it used to be back in my father's time and my early days, compromise was an act of statesmanship, for too many, it's an act of betrayal. >> tomorrow, when the president gives his address, it will be all about finding common ground. former white house chief of staff in the bush administration, talked to me about that yesterday. he remembers well, the tensions surrounding george bush's first ineggeration and he hopes that president obama uses the word "i" a whole lot less and the word "we" a lot more. >> when the united states was formed, our founders took great pains to distinguish our government from the european

, john boehner and the republicans do. neil. neil: not at all. carl cameron, thank you very much. it is probably a very good thing that the markets are closed today. this is republicans pushing back the debt ceiling for another few months. it would essentially be pushing it into may 2 sort of give more wiggle room to both sides to come up with either the spending cuts and/or tax increases. again, this constant kicking the can down the road does not necessarily get the rating agencies off your high needs. as this president, a couple of hours from now, start reviewing a parade in front of them, people will likely be seeing a parade of wall streeter's in very few hours wondering when the specifics will be coming. you are looking at bill clinton and his wife hillary. they will, of course, be part of this luncheon as well. jimmy carter is there. the two bush presidents are not, senior and junior, did not make this event today. that is not an on nominally, it is not all custom for them to come. then, again, a late 2 million americans crowded this mall four years ago. far less than half
